What is Travel Training?

If you feel unconfident, or feel you lack the knowledge to travel independently, our Travel Coordinators are there to empower you by providing training sessions (between 1 & 3) that carefully plan and detail exactly what options are available to you when travelling by public transport.

Travel Training provides bespoke 1-1 travel planning with a Travel Coordinator in South Gloucestershire. Our Travel Coordinators will be on hand to support you on your chosen route, providing assistance and direction where required, in order for you to be able to travel independently.

How do I sign up to a Travel Training session?

In order to receive Travel Training you have to be 16 years or older, currently not able to travel independently and intend to use the sessions to access education, training or employment.

Candidates will be referred via our Partner Organisations, and will be contacted by our Travel Coordinators directly.
